ATI says it's planning to manufacture its first 45nm chips at TSMC in 2008:
Edward Chou, marketing director of ATI Technologies Asia-Pacific division, stated that yield rates on 80nm technology production at Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) remain stable. ATI has been working closely with the foundry, according to Chou, adding that the company is looking to adopt the 45nm node by 2008. ATI began 80nm production at TSMC at the end of 2005 and started production of its 65nm-made chips from the middle of this year.
The company also says it plans to switch it entire lineup to 80nm by the first half of 2007 to save production costs. More info at DigiTimes.
